A Massachusetts man got an unexpected driving lesson from his 6-year-old son. 

Robbie Richardson called 911 after his father ran a red light. Robbie's dad, Mike, said the pair were returning home from shopping when he took a right turn on red. 

"He tells me, 'Hey Dad, you just went through a red light.' And I said, 'No Robbie, you can go through that one as long as you stop and there's nobody coming you can go.'" Richardson said.

Robbie then told his father he couldn't go because it was red.

"So we get into the car wash and he says, 'I'm going to call the police, dad.'"

To make matters worse for Mike, Robbie made sure to let the dispatcher know that he was driving his wife's new car.

"I told him, the yellow light goes green, that means go. And yellow means slow and red means stop," Robbie explained. 

Robbie said he dreams of being a police officer and was happy ot get a chance to enforce the law, even if it meant getting his father in trouble.
